SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 10, 2001, the Department published in the Federal 
Register an antidumping duty order covering honey from the PRC. See 
Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value 
and Antidumping Duty Order; Honey from the People's Republic of China, 
66 FR 63670 (December 10, 2001). On February 2, 2007, the Department 
published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on honey from the PRC. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 5005 (February 2, 2007). On February 5, 
2007, the Department published a notice of initiation of the 
antidumping new shipper review of honey from the PRC. See Honey from 
the People's Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping 
Duty Reviews, 72 FR 5265 (February 5, 2007). On February 23, 2007, the 
Department aligned the new shipper review and the administrative 
review. See Letter from Christopher Riker: Antidumping Duty New Shipper 
Review of Honey from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''): 
Alignment with Administrative Review, dated February 23, 2007.
    On July 31, 2007, the Department published a notice extending the 
deadline of the preliminary results by 90 days, currently due no later 
than December 3, 2007. See Honey From the People's Republic of China: 
Extension of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review and Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 72 FR 41710 (July 31, 
2007).

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested, and a final determination within 120 
days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 
However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these 
time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to 
extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 
365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of these administrative and new shipper reviews within the 
original time limit because the Department requires additional time to 
conduct verification and evaluate the most appropriate surrogate value 
data to use during the period of review. Therefore, the Department is 
extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of 
the aligned administrative and new shipper reviews by an additional 16 
days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than December 
17, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the 
publication of the preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: November 7, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
